The format of haiku is strict:
- Only three lines
- The first line is 5 syllables
- The second line is 7 syllables
- The third line is 5 syllables
In the modern world, I think of writing Google Adwords copy as Haiku.
The format of Google Adwords text ads is strict:
- Only three lines of content plus one with a URL
- The first line has 25 characters (character count includes spaces)
- The second and third lines have 35 characters
- The URL line can be 35 visible characters. It doesn't need to exactly match the URL but does need to have the right domain name. So it could be: Blorum.info/HaikuAdwords whereas the underlying URL could be Blorum.info/haikuadwords27.html

PS. Writing successful Adwords poetry is probably a lot more lucrative than writing great Haikus but in both cases, it's all about the user reaction, right?
